Squirrel Welcomes Tranqill To Brooklyn


My homie Tranqill is here on his first visit to New York for CMJ. Due to so many references in rap music, he was dying to try Popeye's. We sat in a park to eat & this one squirrel would not leave Tranqill alone. Brooklyn squirrel's are something else.

What Is It?


I was sitting outside on the back porch & noticed this insect. What the hell is it? I've never seen it before. Had to snap a couple picks and show you.

I've always felt fortunate when it comes to the artist I have at my disposal. They're talented, dedicated, self sufficient and above all, they're my friends.

We came together on this project to bring you something we started when we first met, a soul project.
